From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Wow. I just can't understand why this is rated 4.40 on a progressive rock website (with current stats, meaning better than Fragile (Yes), The Snow Goose (Camel), Trick Of The Tail (Genesis) and Acquiring The Taste (Gentle Giant)). I find this album barely progressive and sounding like generic radio-friendly guitar-oriented 70's rock. Upon first listen, nothing caught my ear, the album seems to lack in contrast, with the same instrumentation from track to track and nothing innovative. Maybe it can grow on you after a couple of playbacks, but I won't get there.

I'm not saying this album is absolute crap, just that I feel that people expecting top-100 progrock album will find this a bit thin.
